The problem of course is that, while some choose to believe that Paul’s reference to the “man of sin” is a metaphor that refers to the Christian and the fact that our body is now the temple of the Holy Spirit, this stretches the credulity of the text itself. They believe that the “man of sin” is an appellation for the spiritual man created by the Holy Spirit. They do not see Paul’s words as being literal, but merely figurative. Unfortunately, there is nothing in the text that supports this. Paul seems to be clearly pointing ahead to a time still in front of us when a man will walk onto the scene and will surrender himself to Satan. Satan will then give him his authority and enabling (supernaturally). This man will be known as the Antichrist, or “man of sin.” Paul’s use of the singular here is very important. He is speaking of ONE specific individual.
I believe since then, Satan has been busy attempting to rebuild a Tower of Babel, but not in the physical sense. I believe Satan has spent thousands of years bringing people together as “one” in thought, religion, government, and societal structure. This will make it much easier for him to completely indwell one coming individual who will be offered the same thing Jesus was offered in Matthew 4. There, Jesus was offered all the kingdoms of the world if only He would bow down to Satan and worship him alone. We know that Jesus rejected without consideration Satan’s temptation. We also know according to 2 Thessalonians 2, the coming “man of sin” (which is not a metaphor), will likely face the same temptation and, unlike Jesus, will succumb to Satan. At that point, Satan will supernaturally endow this coming “man of sin” with all of Satan’s ability. We learn this in Revelation 13:3-4, which states, “And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast.”
There is nothing wrong with helping people walk again or using technology to fix things in people that are broken so they can live the remainder of their lives with fewer problems and in better health. The problem is when transhumanism is looked at to become the progenitor of “eternal life.” This is completely opposed to God’s created order. He does not want us to live forever physically as fallen individuals. This is why death occurs. It is through death that those who are saved will have new bodies that will be incorruptible. Paul tells us as much in 1 Corinthians 15:53, when he says, “For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.”
This is the way the left plays the game. They do everything to make it appear that they are concerned for the health and well-being of the mother. In reality, they couldn’t care less. What they want – like all globalists and those who represent them – is to have control over the total population number. It’s not about caring about women. They simply make it sound like that. Eventually, they go the whole nine yards and grab it all because they want women to be able to murder their child even during a partial-birth abortion. If women die in the process, oh well. Who cares? These feminist lawmakers don’t care. People like Andrew Cuomo don’t care, because he simply needs to do whatever it takes so that he will be re-elected and he knows how important women’s “health” issues and “rights” are to retaining his seat.
Notice that Lot included himself with the men, not as a homosexual, but as a human being. While the men reacted in anger to Lot, it does not appear that Lot meant to engender anger in them. He was essentially imploring the men to not act wickedly. Yes, on one hand, the comment from Lot could be taken as being judgmental, but it was judgment applied to what these men intended to do. However, it is very clear that while Lot condemned what the men wanted to do, he did not condemn the men themselves.
For now, what I’m saying is that in the world – which is again, Satan’s kingdom – I’m not sure we have a biblical leg to stand on when it comes to trying to change people without considering that they must be changed from within (through receiving salvation) before any real changes can occur. But when it comes to the life of the church, leaders should do everything possible to take care of problems and issues in the most loving way possible. This means never by accepting the sin of the person and simply allowing them to participate in activities that are for only those who have salvation and through commitment and surrender, endeavor to live (through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit) to please God.
People like Rob Bell are “smooth” and use “flattering speech” to specifically deceive people’s hearts. These particular people hang on every word of people like Rob Bell. They see him as a great teacher and even a type of prophet. They are honored to be in his presence because they hear what they believe to be “love.” Is it?
